My favorite is the "OLD" card with the sentiment tucked into the pocket card! I support OWh as much as I can, and actually have a priority box ready to go postal this week! Sharing laughter with our deployed heroes makes me feel a little bit like a heor myself! Everyone feels great when they help others, especially when they can use their talents to create something for others.

These cards are so cute. I haven't tried a criss cross card in a long time.. thanks for the inspiration.

I have three Scor-Pals and LOVE THEM!!! Not a single card is made without the use of one of the them, and I have made thousands of cards that I've sent in to OWH and even more that I've used for family and friends.

It is hands down one of my aboslute favorite things in my stamping arsenal.
